One of my favorite things to do is to find delicious recipes and tweak them. I tweak them because: 1- I don’t have all of the ingredients on hand or 2- I don’t like all of the ingredients in the original recipe.
I found today’s recipe on Lexi’s Clean Kitchen and knew I had to try it, unfortunately I didn’t have all of the ingredients so…

Every year during this time, Floridians have to worry about hurricanes. And right now, we are prepping for one of the worst hurricanes ever recorded.
Stocking up on non-perishable food, water, batteries, putting up shutters and filling up gas tanks are just a few of the things we do in preparation. Bryan and I have done all of the preparing we possibly can, and now we just have to wait…
As well as eat all the perishable food we have in our fridge. Hey, y’all know how much I hate wasting food. 🙂

Hi y’all! I’m back again. And I have a super simple recipe for you to try this holiday weekend. It’s Labor Day and last time I checked, it’s a holiday to celebrate hard working people, so who really wants to work hard on Labor Day?
You. Are. Welcome.
Today’s recipe for vegan Peanut Butter Curry Chickpeas over fluffy white rice is super simple, with just six main ingredients. I served them over top white rice for a simple and satisfying (not to mention, protein packed!) lunch or dinner. I know it sounds crazy to combine peanut butter with chickpeas, but I promise you, you will not be disappointed! Even Bryan loved them – I always count recipes as a win when Bryan goes back for seconds.

Yesterday I made Homemade Pumpkin and Oatmeal Dog Treats for the pups…
Don’t they look excited? They loved them!
The recipe I used made a huge batch of treats and I didn’t want to make that many because I have little pups, so I only made half, leaving me with a lot of leftover pumpkin.

Bryan is gone for a few weeks so I’ve been trying to get my quinoa and kale consumption in – he’s not a huge fan of either, especially kale.
What the kale Bryan?

I’ve been craving pasta lately…(okay, let’s be real. I ALWAYS crave pasta. This is nothing new).
And not just any pasta, I’ve been yearning for pasta with thick, creamy white sauce. I’ll be honest, I’ve never been a huge red pasta sauce gal.
“What do you mean?!” Bryan would say…“You put red sauce on everything…”
Okay, while he may be right (please don’t tell him I said that), for some reason I only like red sauce when I’m dipping breadsticks into it or smothering it on top of pizza (which already has some on it).

Even though it’s almost always summer in south Florida, sometimes I crave big bowls of warm comfort food. And lately I’ve been feeling super fatigued – a few nights ago, Bryan said to me, “Mandy, you need to stop working so much.” And today when he left for work he said, “please do something fun today.”
He’s right (shhhhhhh don’t tell him I said that).
